I have been flying since 2016 and originally learning to fly in Southern California’s congested airspace near LAX, I have since relocated to the Bay Area as an Instructional Designer creating eModules and Training Curriculum under the Learning & Development Team with Cepheid, a Biotech Manufacturing Company that fought against COVID in Sunnyvale. As a Project Manager in training, I embody the “Continuous Improvement”, Kaizen, and 5S Mindset everywhere I go.

Throughout my journey, I have had the privilege of working with over 30 instructors who have each contributed to my knowledge and perspective. I am eager to share their teachings with you and make your flying experience enjoyable, efficient, and safe.

As a UC Berkeley Alumni (Integrative Biology), one day I aspire to serve in the Air Guard/Reserve units to represent the state of California. When I’m not flying, you might spot my golden retriever, Jea, accompanying me. I enjoy listening to artists like Illenium and Excision, as well as relaxing with Lofi music. In my free time, I indulge in hobbies such as building with Legos and watching shows like Naruto and Attack on Titan. One day, I hope to own a Toyota Supra or Ford Mustang to take Jea for a ride.

If you’re ready to learn how to fly in one of the most rewarding locations and experience why I love our state so much, feel free to reach out. Together, we can make your flying dreams a reality.
